What a cutie!
I watched Maverick get kicked at and nipped when he first went in with the older horses. It only lasted a bit though while they all got used to each other. Now he has 5 parents (3 mares and 2 geldings) who all protect him. He'll lay down in the middle of them and they'll take turns standing over him while he sleeps.
Does she do the baby teeth clacking to the older horses? When I first introduced Maverick to our herd he ran up to each horse clacking his teeth saying "I'm a baby, I'm a baby! Please don't hurt me!"
Unfortunately for him, now that he's almost 11 months old, he's starting to think maybe he can push the other horses around. He kicked out at the boss gelding the other day and then immediately ran away clacking his teeth. The other gelding gave him a half-hearted chase, but Maverick's going to be in for a rude awakening one of these days when no one believes his teeth clacking anymore!
